Calcium bromide is used in the coal fire power plant industry to help control mercury emissions. The objective of this study was to determine the effect of bromide additions in chloride-rich Wet Flue Gas Desulfurization slurries on the crevice corrosion resistance of commercially-available corrosion resistant alloys.
Service and design life estimates are converging for many transmission and distribution assets. This report provides an approach to understanding the significance of reject and ranking criteria and how they may become a barrier to good asset management or a path to improving system reliability and grid resiliency.
The effects of cyclic stress and strain on corrosion-fatigue in sweet and sour corrosion were studied with an electrochemical approach. Cold-drawn and cold rolled carbon steel samples were mechanically cycled in a confined and CO2-saturated synthetic seawater solution, and their electrochemical response was acquired with a classic 3-electrode apparatus.
